Baked Potato Salad

This is a quick go to recipe for me! Attending a no theme potluck I will make this, with the meat most of the time, and offer it up. Serve cold or warm, tastes about the same either way. Raving reviews each time!
If you need a larger amount, say for a potluck, use 5 - 10 lbs of potatoes and increase other ingredients accordingly. Most of my amounts are a guess as I add what looks right and tastes right. So feel free to adjust for your taste preferences!!
